We have a main site with 2 dns 2008r2 servers that replicate to dns/ad servers at remote sites and they have a vpn tunnel to every site.
There are tunnels built via cisco ASA between the sites, but there is not a tunnel between every site.
I added a new DNS to a remote site on server 2003. It automatically generated an NTDS Settings in AD sites and Services to replicated with our main server at the main site but also a dns at the remote site that it does not have a vpn tunnel to. Therefore I am getting replication errors.  I was always told to not mess with the automatically generated ones, so is it okay to delete this?

You need to create AD sites and service topology as per physical connectvity.It seem you have hub and spoke topology.See below thread how to create the same.

So on the new server I went under Inter site Tansports and under IP where my dafaultIPSITELINK is I clicked to add a new Site link and in this link just put the remote site rr and the main site cc in.  In the default site link I took out the remote rr so it won't try to replicate with the remote site V v. Now I just wait for it to replicate. Does this sound correct?

I guess I should ask if I disable the site link bridge do I need to manually set up the ones that are already replicating correctly ( it is enabled now) or doing the way I said above will that work okay without disabling?

Lets assume you have 4 site Site A/B/C/D and site A is hub site.So the topology will look like this

- Create site for all four site A,SiteB...
- Create site link a below(Add the two sites in each specific connector).
SiteA- SiteB
SiteA-SiteC
SiteA-SiteD
-Disable bridging:http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc738789(v=ws.10).aspx
- Ensure that you also create subnets and map to specific.

Once done wait for replication kcc will create the required topology.If you have created any manual connection delete the same as it is not recommended.http://blogs.technet.com/b/markmoro/archive/2011/08/05/you-are-not-smarter-than-the-kcc.aspx

Okay. I was confused becuase it was alrady disabled for IP but it set up a replication to a server it can't reach?  I think its good now thanks for the links they were very helpful.
I set up a new link and deleted the bad one. At least its replicating now.
Thanks
